Maximize is a 2-hour board game which enables managers to practice collaboration in a competitive set-up. While competing for essential resources in a high-pressure environment, participants get to practice essential elements related to communicating with purpose, building trust and collaborating across silos to achieve a common goal. With a strong debrief discussion after the game, Maximize is ideal for a half day session. It can also be integrated into longer formats of training.
The First Quarter
The First Quarter simulates the first 12 weeks in the life of a new manager. Participants encounter a range of situations covering all aspects of their role as a manager and based on their decisions, earn points on the customer, people or business metrics. Chance cards, trophies and a real-time leaderboard bring in an element of peer learning and competition. This game is ideal as an anchor for a first-time managers program. The game time is 1 hour and an additional hour for discussion and de-brief.
Rapid is an engaging and true to life game on managing and leading change. Over a duration of 2 hours, participants respond to various change situations, which are structural, people, process or cultural. Planning, implementing and tracking their change management plans leads to them earning or losing points in this fast-paced, dynamic game. This game is ideal for integrating into a day-long program on change management.
